Population, in 1836, 1,782, chiefly located in the villages of Chryston, Mollingburn, Moodiesburn, and Auchinloch. Church built in 1780; sittings 564. Stipend £70, with a manse and garden valued at £10. The minister of Cadder used to officiate every third Sunday here; but in 1780 the Chryston end of the parish was made a distinct chapelry.
